Creating life-giving energy for a family battling the devastating effects of Mitochondrial Disease.
5K with 1-Mile Supporter Option
Timed: Mens & Ladies 5K, Family 5K
Untimed: Supporter Mile
The Comstock Energy Run is a 5K run/walk with a mission of encouraging and supporting Nathan Martin and his family as they battle mitochondrial disease, which causes the cells in Nathan's body to not have enough energy to support his body's needs.
All run proceeds will go directly to the Martin family, and as such the contributions are not tax deductible.
The route (click to view) can be accessed through the RunGo app.
The route will allow every participant to run by the Martin family and cheer for Nathan as you go by, even as he cheers for you! It is a very flat course utilizing the Kalamazoo Valley Trail, the sidewalk along M-96, one block of 35th Street, and the Shadowlane neighborhood.
Winners will be announced on the website. Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no opening or closing ceremonies. No medals will be awarded.
